Although it may look a bit scruffy, the flowers are cheerful to see when I leave in the morning.
I really need to start showing the yard some attention soon. It's been challenging though, as I've been going by the rehab center to visit my dad after work every day, or I've been checking on my mom, who developed a case of bronchitis at the same time. My sister and I have tried to tag team what needs doing, but I'm getting tired.
I haven't been on the beach since last Saturday, when I took these photos.
But I am going to head south to the Outer Banks of North Carolina on Thursday afternoon, right after work, for the Tidewater Knitting Guild Yarn Retreat weekend. My dad goes home tomorrow, and if something should come up while I'm gone, I can be home in less than 90 minutes. After the past two weeks, I need the rest.
My new semester has been going very well. The first term is already coming to an end and I'm really pleased with the size of my classes, the students' behavior, and the new ideas I've incorporated into my lessons. I'm sure it helps that I'm in a much better place, emotionally, than I was in August.
I'll be sure to post photos of the weekend shenanigans early next week. The weather is supposed to be sunny and mild, so I'm planning to catch up on my beach walking as well as my knitting. I got a lot of knitting done on my Mary Rebecca sweater while I was waiting around the hospital, but not so much since then, so I'm looking forward to getting back to that as well. Hope you have a lovely relaxing weekend planned too!
